Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Festival Returning For Year Three

Housecore Horror Festival - November 2015 - promo flyer - #111315MOPHA

Legendary metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th – 15th, 2015.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October. Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival’s success and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year.

“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be,” he says. “There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that’s what we’re going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.”

Bands already confirmed to play are Suffocation, AutopsyCripple Bastards, Nails, SYk & Dalila KayrosYOBEyehategod, Child BiteWarbeast and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. “When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered,” Anselmo continues. “Nothing has changed, in that respect.”

Tickets to go on sale soon! Stay tuned for additional announcements.

REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre’s finest and continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. The band’s latest full-length, Deathless, was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts.

Deathless debuted on the Billboard Charts beating their previous album by more than 30 spots to land at #124 on the Top 200 Chart. Deathless also debuted at #10 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #114 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart and #1 on the Billboard New Artist Chart. This is REVOCATION‘s second straight debut on the Top 200 Chart.

During the recording process, the band shot a series of videos documenting their work. All three episodes, along with the music video for the title track, can be seen now at metalblade.com/revocation.

Thrashers PROWLER Announce New Album ‘From The Shadows’

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , on May 17, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Prowler - promo band pic - 2015 - #05PMOFPR1

Is it fair to state that as metalheads we spend a lot of our time checking out new records? Hunting out the next big thing that we can introduce our friends to, something new, and something that evokes the feelings we once got on an almost daily basis back in the day when first discovering metal.

However, on occasion we’re brought back to the classics, the old Metallica records, early Annihilator and so forth; the exact records we discovered on the voyage of metal discovery. Yet sometimes those old classics just don’t quite hit the spot… And that’s exactly what makes bands such as Prowler a breath of fresh fucking air. Everything we’ve heard before is there, it’s familiar, but it’s new and that’s the fundamental difference.

Formed in 2010, Prowler went on to release four EP’s and a box set before signing to Slaney Records to release their debut album After You in 2013, and The New Blood EP later that same year. The thrash titans hailing from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina are now on the verge of unleashing yet another beast of a record, their second full length entitled From The Shadows. Overseen by Roger Lian, the same man who was responsible for Slayer’s South Of Heaven and countless others including Overkill, Pantera and Damageplan; you can be assured a great production.

The world won’t go on fire, journalists won’t be scrambling over each other to make up new genre terms (thank god) but that is exactly the point! What you will find is a sterling record in the vein of old school thrash, heavy, destructive and as brazen as the first waves of the genre and unleashed by a troupe of young fiery musicians with the same raw energy captured back in the day on the likes of Ride The Lightning.

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC To Release DARK QUARTERER’s ‘Ithaca’ On Vinyl LP Format In September

Posted in Metal, Music, progressive rock, rock music, metal music, progressive metal with tags , , , on May 15, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Dark Quarterer - Ithaca - promo vinyl album cover pic - 2015

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is proud to announce the vinyl LP release of DARK QUARTERER‘s new album Ithaca. The target date for release is September 19th. The album was released on April 25th on CD by Metal on Metal Records, to much acclaim.

Mastered specifically for vinyl format, the release will include two exclusive 2010, live bonus tracks that were specifically chosen by the band for their quality and uniqueness. The first is a version of band’s own classic “War Tears.”  This version of the track is sung in Italian, making the interpretation of singer Gianni Nepi  particularly passionate. The second  is the long, touching piece “Deep Wake,” another song that shows Dark Quarterer’s incredible skills. In addition to over 70 minutes of stellar, progressive metal music, this deluxe DOUBLE LP GATEFOLD EDITION will also include a 4-page booklet with lyrics and a download card.

Ithaca is a concept album inspired by the 1911’s poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used  Odysseus’s travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life; the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it’s a mix of ’80s epic heavy metal with ’70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom.

Dark Quarterer - Ithaca - promo vinyl album banner - 2015 - 0515MODQ

1. The Path of Life
2. Night Song
3. Mind Torture
4. Escape
5. Nostalgia
6. Rage of Gods
7. Last Fight
8. Peace
9. War Tears (live)*
10. Deep Wake (live) *

*Vinyl-only bonus track

SIX FEET UNDER – Crushing “Crypt Of The Devil” First-Week Chart Numbers Revealed

Posted in Metal, Music, Death Metal, rock music, metal music, metal bands with tags , , , , on May 15, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Six Feet Under - Crypt Of The Devil - promo album cover pic - 2015 #663409MO

Crypt Of The Devil, the latest platter of brutality from iconic death metal merchants, SIX FEET UNDER, crushed the Billboard Charts this week debuting at #13 on the Hard Music Chart, #13 on the Heatseekers Chart, #32 on the Independent Albums Chart, #49 on the Rock Albums Chart, #120 on the Physical Albums Chart and #161 on the Top 200 Current Albums Chart!

In Canada, Crypt Of The Devil placed at #33 on the Hard Music Chart and #198 on the Top Sellers Chart. On the Official Top 100 Charts in Europe, the record earned the #42 spot in Germany marking it SIX FEET UNDER‘s highest charting record pillaging Bringer Of Blood‘s German entry at #36 and True Carnage‘s entry at #40. Additionally, Crypt Of The Devil nabbed the #20 spot on the Media Markt/Saturn Charts.

Composed by notorious growl tsar, Chris Barnes with Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil “Landphil” Hall, Crypt Of The Devil serves as SIX FEET UNDER‘s eleventh studio offering and delivers ten venomous odes of murderous death metal barbarity ornamented in Barnes’ haunting prose. Surveying the blackest depths of the human mind, the record is disquieting in both sound, mind and spirit.

Sample the album in all its menacing glory, courtesy of High Times, at THIS LOCATION as well as the band’s Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, The Locust etc.) directed “Open Coffin Orgy” video HERE.

SIX FEET UNDER began as a side project while Barnes – owner of what would become one of the most dominating, groundbreaking and instantly distinguishable voices of the death metal genre – was fronting Cannibal Corpse.  SIX FEET UNDER would eventually become a full-fledged entity in 1995 and now stands among the longest standing and successful acts in death metal history, with all but their debut appearing on a Billboard chart.

Crypt Of The Devil is out now on Metal Blade Records. Various order bundles are available today at metalblade.com/sixfeetunder.
